ATAB, in an effort to address the current training situation that exist in the responder industry, developed training modules provided on DVD for convenient training and study.  With budget crunches impacting most businesses and governments, funds are often not available to send all staff to training.  Unfortunately, the officer on the street doing the job seems to be the last to receive funds for training. 

ATAB initially developed these programs after 911 to provide a standard response methodology to respond to a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive (CBRNE) Incidents.  ATAB utilized FEMA, DOT, US Army and Federal Fire Academy safety courses and merged them into informative and understandable training modules of Power Points using photo driven information to make the material easy to understand.

ATAB Advantages. 

ATAB provides responders with quality training materials at a very reasonable price.

ATAB has provided certification materials to over 13,000 individuals around the world.

ATAB provides ongoing updates and develops ongoing training modules to address new and current threats as they arise.

ATAB networking opportunities have provided CAS and CMAS’s with numerous employment opportunities.  Yesterday a CMAS called and ask if I was aware that one Federal Agency recently hired a complete department of investigators and each one of them was a CAS or CMAS.  We have had many members express that the reason for their employment was directly due to their certification as a CAS.

The Anti-Terrorism Accreditation Board and the International Association for Counterterrorism and Security Professionals (IACSP) have partnered together to provide enhanced benefits, training opportunities and discounted rates for our members.  For those that are not familiar with IACSP,  the IACSP is a network of Counterterrorism/Homeland security professionals interacting with other professionals providing a forum of education and information, while promoting international cooperation on counterterrorism policy through its flagship publication – The Journal of Counterterrorism & Homeland Security International (now into its 26th year of publication), its website, http://www.iacsp.com.

There is nothing more rewarding to the ATAB board members than to receive an email from a military member that states that while on patrol their life was saved due to information that they learned in an ATAB IED training module.
